Patrick Harding

Patrick will lead us to a range of habitats. These include chalk downs, meadows, and woodland. We will walk slowly and have time to locate, identify, photograph, and enjoy splendid native summer flowers.

From orchids on the downs to yellow rattle in the hay meadows, there will be floral folk tales and tips about their medicinal and culinary uses.

In the evenings, there will be flowery slide shows, and books to peruse. An introduction will be given to plant identification, and in particular, to recognising the most common plant families.

Dr Patrick Harding is an expert who retains enthusiasm in the field of flora and flora. He is the author of numerous books on natural history topics, and a regular broadcaster on radio and television.

A chance to unwind and be rejuvenated!

Yoga works not only on the body but also calms and sharpens the mind and leads to all-round alertness.

Iyengar Yoga will be taught in a way that is suited to beginners and more experienced practitioners. The classes will focus on postures to improve flexibility, strength, and balance.

The weekend will also include a walk on the Wiltshire Downs, and a local walk leaving from the farm.

On Saturday there will be a morning yoga class, followed by a hearty brunch. Then there will be a walk on the Wiltshire Chalk Downs (about 4/5 miles). We will return to the farm for tea and cake, followed by a restorative yoga session. In the evening, our rustic sauna will be available.

On Sunday morning, there will be an early morning Pranayama class, followed by breakfast, then, a short local walk, followed by an asana class, and then a late lunch. Departures during the afternoon, from about 3pm.

Massages with Mary Maguire can be booked at a cost of £35, (payable to Mary during the weekend)

Group size: up to about 12.
